This is a beautifully done sleeve tattoo of two elegant lotus flowers. One being in a three dimensional view and the other in a two dimensional view. I really like the way the way the water ripples, around the top lotus, in three dimensional layers that go above the flower itself. Even though it’s not complete yet, the second flower below looks great in its own, more simple way. The curves and shades of the water and top lotus are greatly done. The outlining of the borders have been done in a way that the tattoo fades to the outside of the arm. The lotus represents many things to different cultures and is a symbol of the spirit.
